Stayed at the Chaba 27 July for 5 nights as a budget hotel conveniently situated in the heart of the commercial area. On that basis it did not disappoint because we only used it as a base. However, if you want to spend more time using hotel amenities this is not the hotel for you as there are some other finer more modern hotels not far away. Our room was situated overlooking the lake which was OK but the air conditioning was noisy (had to be on all the time because of the heat and humidity) and it also leaked badly when it rained (which nearly caused some bad slips on a hard floor). As it advertised a fitness centre I did try to use it but found it very basic with the one and only running machine not working. Drawing the staff's attention to the problem I waited in vain for someone to return and fix it. Had a similar problem with the safe, when I had a problem using it on the first day and having drawn Reception's attention to it we left the hotel 5 days later still not having it fixed. The swimming pool was out of bounds on the lake side for the whole of the holiday.
Staff friendliness was mixed with some as friendly as it is possible to be and others more distant. Meals were OK but nothing to literally write home about.
In summary - not the world's worst hotel but having called in at many others for coffee and to look at the amenities on offer I would probably go elsewhere if we were to return.
